It occurred to me recently that I'm as heavy as I was my fourth year of college. I started college at 235 pounds and grew to 312 pounds before I graduated. Given, I lost a few pounds and departed at a trim 298 pounds. On the whole, I grew nearly 80 pounds in six (gasp) years. Yes I spent six years pursuing my bachelor's degree, but that's a whole other story.
It feels really good to turn back the clock on my weight. I like that the number of years since I last weighed what I currently weigh is growing. It's been four years since I last weighed what I weigh now. I'd like to be able to say 5 years by April, which means I want to hit 260 by then. I don't know if it will be attainable, but I'm going to try.
Yesterday I was definitely in a funk. Re-losing weight is nowhere near as exciting as losing it the first time; it's something that needs to be done so I can get back to taking it off the first time. I'm a little worried about how good I'm going to be at maintaining once I get to my goal weight because of it. That's still 79 pounds away and I shouldn't be too concerned yet. My journey is about building good habits as well as losing weight.
